Why I’m Choosing ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses over Eyeglasses

The cold season is finally upon us here in the east coast and that means a lot of things for different people, but for eyeglass wearers like myself, that means foggy glasses, a.k.a., inconvenience! I’ve made the decision to switch to ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses and today, I will be sharing with you my entire experience, and some of the reasons why I’m choosing them over my eyeglasses.

I  want to first share with you my experience before getting my prescription contacts. I went to see Dr. Joshua Gordon for an eye exam and to get fitted for contacts. My experience at his clinic was fantastic. He shared so much information about different types of contact lenses and their benefits, and I opted for the 1-day lenses. I will explain why later in this post. The process didn’t take forever, and I came out of the clinic knowing that my life is going to change for the better.

I went back to the clinic the following week to pick up my 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand Contact Lenses, and to be trained on how to wear and care for my contacts. Since I was a first-time user, I found this session very helpful. The nurse taught me everything I needed to know, and since I am a quick learner, I got the hang of it pretty fast. I then met very briefly with Dr. Gordon once again just to double-check the fit of the lenses. They felt so comfortable! We were out of the office after 20 mins, and everything around me just looked so clear! I couldn’t believe my eyes, literally! My vision was so clear, I was so amazed!

I chose to get the 1-Day contact lenses because as the name suggests, I can only use the lenses for one day. I don’t have to worry about losing my lenses, and I also don’t need to track how old my lenses are. With the dailies, all I need to worry about is putting them on for the day, and tossing them right after I’m done with them. This also ensures that my lenses will always feel fresh and clean upon each use. No more worrying about little fuzzies in my lenses because I will be opening a fresh pack each day. Also, if I feel like not wearing lenses, I don’t need to open up a pack, and I could save my lenses for another day. There won’t be any wasted days with the 1-day packs because you only use them on the day that you need them. I hope that made sense! For important safety information click here.
